Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThis is the inaugural vintage of of their Sparkling Rosé Brut, utilizing 8% apassimento grapes, as is their signature move. This blends 72% riesling and 28% pinot noir in a charmat method, finishing with 10g/L RS. Riesling is at the forefront, with a candied lime and citrus perfume note that pervades, along with a bite of acidity, cutting the candied strawberry, red apple on the palate. There's an acerbic orange note that sticks to the finish.Tasted: 23 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 24.95 winery direct Producer: The Foreign Affair WineryBlend: Riesling - Pinot Noir
